Breaks from school are always an exciting time. From staying up a little later than normal, to quality time with family. But getting back into your usual routine isn’t always as easy as it seems. That first day back to school can take a toll on everyone, parents and kids alike.
Here are 5 tips to prepare your kids for the first day back from break.
Readjust Sleeping Schedules.
One of the best things about a break from school is being able to sleep late and not have to wake up early the next morning. But before you know it, your body is used to sleeping in late. To make that first day back to school morning a little easier, send your kids to bed early a couple of days before. Getting back into the routine of a set sleeping schedule will ensure your child feeling awake and alert in school.
Prep the Night Before.
Running late can take a toll on your kids, not to mention the risk of forgetting something important. To make the morning run smoother, lay out your kid’s clothes the night before. Double check all homework and school supplies are placed in their backpacks. Pre-pack lunches and snacks for the next day.
Eat a Healthy Breakfast.
In order to maintain a high level of energy throughout the school day, kids must start their day with a nutritional breakfast. A meal containing egg, milk, fruit, or yogurt is always a good choice.
Before sending your kids off to school, make sure to double-check their backpack for any homework or parent information. As a kid, it’s easy to forget information the teacher might have given the last day before break.
Creating an after-school plan can eliminate any anxiety both parents and kids may have. Establishing how the child will get home or a specific location to meet will clear up any confusion.
